Wells Cathedral guides are renowned both locally and nationally as some of the best in the country. The Cathedral offers the services of these highly trained volunteer guides at no extra cost. Groups may wish to book a general guided tour, or one that incorporates special interest areas such as symbolism, embroideries, glass, carvings and vestments. Children go round in groups of 10 and must be accompanied by a member of the visiting school staff at all times.
Tours last approximately 1 hour and can add significantly to your enjoyment and appreciation of the cathedral. Please book at least two weeks in advance.
